Module 11 - IN THE FIELD
The cradle carry position is comfortable but it doesn’t offer the same level of control as the two-handed carry position. For the cradle carry, you simply place one hand on the grip, cradle the forestock of the firearm in the crook of the elbow of your other arm and cover your grip hand’s wrist with your other hand. in this position your arms will form a ‘cradle’ shape. Make sure the muzzle is pointed away from any other hunters.
